I had a meal in this restaurant last Sat,(5th July 2014). The atmosphere in the restaurant was great, the service was also excellenta and overall I was very pleased. The food was tasty and nicely presented. I would thoroughly recommend it as it is located in a very central location and the whole experience was very acceptable.

Twice we caught the bus to and from Dublin, returning very hungry, and Fiddler's is just a few steps from the bus stop. Very inviting store front, and once inside, AWESOME!!!

Had a late lunch here, but it was also the venue for a surprise 18th birthday party for a friends daughter. The lunch was hot and tasty, chicken kiev with mash, veg and gravy......however, the place came into it's own for the party. The service, food, nightclub was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble for the manager or his staff.
